At the meeting of Iowa Academy of Science, 1944, Miller presented a short paper on the occurrence of some species of Verbascum in Iowa. The occurrence of V. phlomoides in Johnson County was based in part upon 2 specimens in the State University of Iowa herbarium collected in 1911 by Shimek in "Black's pasture west of city park" Iowa City. "Black's pasture" has long since changed into a residential district in which the writer now lives. One day last June he was genuinely thrilled to find among vacant lots and victory gardens a few speciments of Verbascum phlomoides which might, for sake of continuity, be labeled "Black's pasture 1944".
